Greetings brothers and friends,
Since we were little we have been taught a meaning of wealth, which, although it is the most used in society, is perhaps not quite true.
For many, wealth is money, or material goods, it is true, material goods and money can place people in a higher social status than people who do not own material goods, and for them that may be their wealth . They have struggled to achieve their assets and their status, and it is not something that is wrong. The problem is when the person has reached a certain level, but in his life there is no peace!
There are people who can have everything they want and not have peace in their hearts, in other cases, we see people who have not really struggled to obtain their material goods, but have obtained it in an unscrupulous way, or of bad provenance.
So … will that really be wealth?
The word of God tells us:
Better a little with the fear of the Lord
than great wealth with turmoil.
Many people are able to sell their integrity for money, for status, regardless of the consequences, many leave their principles and even betray their beliefs for the supposed wealth that the system can offer them.
In my country, we are currently experiencing a crisis that is increasing every day, and the need is increasing in more and more homes. Now more than ever people sell their integrity, to obtain an apparent way out of their needs. Many do not mind harming the neighbor, for getting a benefit for himself.
Unfortunately everything has its consequences. An apparent wealth, which for a few days will bring joy and meet some need, will sooner or later charge an invoice. Many have thought that by getting things easily and falling into corruption, they will be happy, but the reality is that what is corrupted will never bring peace or happiness. Maybe a few days, a few months, or maybe a few years but then everything will fall.
Better a small serving of vegetables with love
than a fattened calf with hatred.
Maybe today we have little, but in integrity there is a lot. Maybe for now the budget is tight, but there is love and that, after all, I think, is wealth. The best wealth!, Wealth of the soul and the spirit, the one that is better and more important The rest will come in addition, and God will never forsake the righteous.
Thank God for everything you give us…
